With Cover Photo Maker, your photos can finally be used in the wide yet narrow space that Facebook provides without the need to heavily crop or distort your images!

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has made it inevitable that everyone will be switching over to the Facebook Timeline (if you haven't already). Facebook's new Timeline Cover Photo is a large banner-like photograph at the top of your profile. Front and centre, it's the first photo that everyone sees when they visit your Timeline. It is also the only photo that Facebook deems "Public". Take control of what people first see on your Facebook Timeline by fully customizing your Cover Photo using your own photos. You can create a photo collage and add text, all with this simple to use app! Make it look exactly the way you want! You can learn more about Facebook's Timeline, including switching to it here.
No, the app works fine even if you do not (yet) have Facebook's Timeline. The Cover Photos can be saved to your Camera Roll, emailed or saved in a Facebook Photo Album. You can use the Cover Photos you created for whatever you want, but the intended purpose for them was to be used on your Timeline's Cover.

Uploading to Facebook:
Facebook does not currently allow third party apps like Cover Photo Maker to upload Cover Photos directly to a Facebook Page. Please see one of the Alternative Methods to uploading your Cover Photo to Facebook instead.
▶ I chose “Upload to Facebook” on the Finish screen and it said “Saving to Facebook”. Where did my Cover Photo get saved?
Facebook does not currently allow third party apps to upload images directly to the Timeline Cover Photo. Instead, your Cover Photos are saved in a Facebook Photo Album called "Cover Photo Maker Photos." You have to manually select a photo stored in this album and make it your Timeline Cover Photo. This is a limitation of Facebook's integration with apps and not of Cover Photo Maker itself. You could also use the Alternative Method to upload your Cover Photos directly to your Timeline.
▶ I’m trying to upload my Cover Photo to Facebook, but I get an error that says “An error occurred with Cover Photo Maker. Please try again later.” How do I fix this?
On a very rare occasion, interfacing with Facebook can momentarily cause a glitch in the upload process. Please shut down Cover Photo Maker app completely, reload the app and upload your Cover Photo to Facebook again. To completely shut down the app, double press the Home button and hold your finger over the Cover Photo Maker app icon that appears at the bottom of the screen. Select the "-" close button that appears. If the problem persists, please contact us. You can also use the "Alternate" method to upload your Cover Photos to Facebook.
Yes, there are two alternative ways you can put your Cover Photos up on Facebook instead of uploading it directly from the app: 1) Instead of uploading your Cover Photo using the "Upload to Facebook" button, Save your Cover Photo to your Camera Roll first. Then upload this saved cover photo directly to your Timeline using the official Facebook app or Facebook web site using a web browser. This method might be a good alternative because you save a copy of your Cover Photo to your iOS device as a backup and you also upload it directly to your Timeline. 2) Instead of uploading your Cover Photo using the "Upload to Facebook" button, Email your Cover Photo to yourself. Then upload the emailed cover photo directly to your Timeline through Facebook's web site using a web browser. This method might be a good alternative because you save a copy of your Cover Photo to your email as a backup and you also upload it directly to your Timeline.
